SERHS Food increases its territorial presence thanks to the mass catering awarding of Lleida’s Univeristy Hospital Arnau de Vilanova and other 19 schools in Oviedo city.
With these new awarding’s the division consolidates its bet for educative and health mass catering and SERHS Food will toughly increase its annual billing.
University Hospital Arnau de Vilanova catering management
The batch awarded to the hospital centre, apart from the patients and the centre employees’ catering, includes Santa María Hospital catering management, with its 4 student and teachers cafés.
Both hospital facilities sum up a 600 bed and more than 2.500 employees total and it is estimated that the annual management will be more than 160.000 patient pensions and more than 8.500 employees’ pensions.
Management of 19 schools mass catering in Oviedo
The 19 education centres awarding will suppose 3.225 diary menus and 400 breakfasts to SERHS Food in a 4-year contract with the possibility to extend it two more years.
With these two new assignments, SERHS Food growth is due to two key factors: specialization on one hand and flexibility on the other. SERHS Food service strategy pivots around these two central aspects pursuing an excellent customer-driven food proposal.
It is estimated that the number of people within Europe who suffer some type of food allergy ranges between 11 and 26 million. If we extrapolate this data to everyone, it is estimated that between 220 and 520 million people suffer from a food allergy and this represents a major global burden for health. It is at Spanish level, where Eudec, SERHS Food specialized brand in traditional prepared dishes, takes advantage of this need to help this segment of the population with a new catalogue of 15 prepared dishes free of allergens.
All references in the new catalogue are suitable for coeliacs. Beyond gluten, the three foods that produce more allergies among children in Spain are eggs, cow’s milk and fish. However, this new Eudec project includes prepared dishes free of any of the 14 allergens defined by the Spanish Food Information Law, with which the proposal represents an important advance in the “Ready to Eat” kitchen offer.
Experience of Eudec and SERHS Food in the development of products for coeliacs
SERHS Food has an independent kitchen that guarantees the absence of allergens in food. The allergen-free production line of the High-Performance Kitchen of Mataró is independent and autonomous from the rest of the plant; since only the cardboard removal area is shared. It is therefore defined as a complete production line, which has its own cooking, preparation and packaging areas, avoiding 100% allergen contamination.
The first 15 allergen-free mono-ration dishes include various creations of vegetable cream, rice, quinoa salad, macaroni, gilthead or veal burger among others. All of them elaborated in a traditional way with proximity and seasonal products.
